As if you didn't already know that today is the day The Deathly Hallows part 1 comes out on video -- excuse me, DVD or Blu-Ray. Can you even buy a VHS of new movies any more? I don't think so . . .
What I love about the final movie (part one anyway) is that it stayed so true to the books. The others have been great but I always get an earful from my husband afterwards about what was different. It really bothers him.
What I didn't love? The vamped-up sexuality of the scene where Ron is trying to destroy the horcrux and it's presenting him with his fears about Harry and Hermione. Because someday I would like my teenagers to see these movies and I really don't think that was appropriate. Or necessary. Or sold more tickets. Please, it's Harry Potter people. It doesn't need it. This is the reason I hesitate to spend money at movie theaters. I never know when I'm going to have to walk out. The rating system doesn't really help.
That's my soap-box.
